Seven quality starts out of nine total.

Now hitting .450 and OPSing a cool 1.250.

IMO the Reds need to resign him to a multi-year deal.

Last night was clear evidence why you don't bunt Willis at every opportunity, unless, of course, you're Dusty Baker and grinding your toothpick away just itching to take the bat out of his hands.

I wish they could sign him at a reasonable rate and then use Bailey, Wood, and Volquez to acquire some other needs.

Yes, he should be re-signed, and imo, used as a PH. (I'd atleast use him, in place of Lewis, anytime/everytime)

Not that I disagree with most of what you said, I want us to resign him and would love to have his bat available as a PH, but isn't Lewis one of the best PH'ers in all of baseball?

when a lot of teams are out of the race, the incentive wanes and borderline players may look pretty good sometimes, then the next season starts and the fools gold reverts to incompetence

How about an incentive laden deal?

X number of quality starts.
X number of wins.
e.r.a. under 4.50.

Bonuses if attains certain stats that certainly should add up to success or atleast show he's keeping the team in ballgames.

Please help..several weeks ago searched and his salary is not listed.

Understand he was signed to a minor league contract and may not be making the major league minimum of $414k - http://mlb.mlb.com/pa/info/faq.jsp#minimum

What is he making in 2011?

Sorry if already answered.
